Weather Check: High Surf at Beaches, Hot Temps in the Valleys
It's another typical day in the Los Angeles area--temperature wise at least--but south facing beaches are expected see some of the biggest waves seen in years because of a swell originating in the South-Pacific. "The high surf is a byproduct of 50-knot winds that developed off Tahiti and are blowing toward Southern California, producing 8-to-12-foot swells at some beaches," explains the LA Times.
As for temperatures, Los Angeles and Orange County beaches will be in the 70s with more inland areas hitting near 90, according to the National Weather Service. The Valley will mostly be in the 90s while the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys will stretch beyond 100. The San Gabriel Valley will be a little cooler between 80 and 90.
